Thankful

Enough

Give thanks in all circumstances.
1 Thessalonians 5:18

Give thanks always?
And in every situation?

Even when
You are settling in a new land?
And you are scared?
And the winter winds blow through the cracks?
And famine is unrelenting?
And disease is destroying your dreams?

Give thanks in all circumstances.

Give thanks always?
And in every situation?

Even when
The CT scan is ominous?
And the MRI is worse?
And surgery is unsuccessul?
And the diagnosis shattering?
And there is no cure?

Give thanks in all circumstances.

For thankfulness leads to
Joy.
And joy leads to
Hope.

Hope is all we need.

Hope is
Enough
